Where is the news coverage of the Copenhagen bomb attack?

It was really sad to hear about the bomb attacks at the Out Games in Copenhagen. Fortunately no one was killed but people were injured.

What however was disturbing was the lack of mainstream news coverage of this event. A simple google news search showed 127 arctles of which shows besides the BBC and AP no other media even mentioned it.

While the bombing didn't kill anyone I suspect if this had occured at any other major event it would have at least got some international coverage even if it just a snippet on the international page.

Even the BBC coverage is interesting in that the photo they used is drag queen which is okay but this is a sports event so why not something sport related?

I would be interested if any one has seen any media coverage outside the gay media on this awful event - please add comments if you.
